The alternative finance specialist is making moves to modernise after announcing new funding last month.

As it prepares to ramp up its lending effort, ThinCats gathered over 100 business leaders and finance professionals at the National Space Centre in Leicester to celebrate its rebrand launch.

The platform, which is owned and operated by ESF Capital, confirmed a £200m funding programme for UK SMEs in October.

Taking advantage of the location, Damon Walford, CDO of ThinCats, told the audience: “Our industry is sometimes guilty of making what we do seem complicated. The bottom line is that what we do is not rocket science.

“We are on a mission to change the face of SME funding in the UK – and we will only succeed with your help and support.”

CEO of ThinCats and its parent company ESF Capital, John Mould, was also in attendance, alongside ESF’s managing director Ravi Anand (pictured above).

Ravi said: “ThinCats serves the market both within and beyond traditional funders. We’re challenging the challengers and carving out our own path in the alternative finance landscape.”

John added: “We’ve got a proven track record, and institutional backing with access to diverse pools of funding with more than £200m of committed capital ready to deploy. Our company evolution, leading to the new branding and relaunch, adds to this compelling message.”

ThinCats’ new branding message will be officially unveiled in mid-December.
